Book Club

For several years now a group of really nice ladies I know has been meeting to share books.  We are all teachers and paraprofessionals--and moms--and as the years have gone by are gradually becoming retired teachers and paraprofessionals--and grandmothers.  We meet at the local country club so no one has to clean or cook.  We talk about our lives, and often, the book.   We're not judgmental (if you didn't read it) and always enjoy hearing differing opinions.  I've read so many more books than I ever would have without this group.  Thanks, ladies!

Our most recent book:  House Rules by Jodi Picoult

Our next book:  Sapphira and the Slave Girl by Willa Cather

My personal favorite this year:  The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Schaffer

Any suggestions for future books?

  1. I'm reading, "The Last Boy" by Jane Leavy. It is about Mickey Mantle and probably different from what a group of ladies may choose to read. But, may give them some insight of their son's and grandson's challanges of "growing-up".
